user reviews of the Sun Inn, Belton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The Sun Inn was my favourite pub of the day. It's a lovely village local in a quiet backwater off the A47. You get the feeling that the 3 small rooms are just the same as they were 50 years ago. In fact, the customers are probably just the same, albeit much older. It's the kind of place that is a declining breed across England. So make use of it whilst it's still here. Ringwood Razor Back was the real ale. Be careful of opening times. I was conscious that it closed at 2pm on a Sunday.

Camped here to hike in the area. Rolling hills that never quite stand out from their fellows and endless fields that all look the same. Footpaths churned up by horsey types. Pretty (but lifeless) neat villages of orange sandstone houses all with the same Disneyesque character. The most
tedious hiking I've ever done. I moan about Peak District prices but why do the locals think their boring countryside round here is anything as
special to charge similar greedy touroid prices.

There were posters to end the hunting ban and the bus driver told me that someone drew up a petition to stop the bus service going through the village as it lowered the tone so you can imagine the types that live here and what prices would be like.

The pub could have been a refreshing change from this underlying snobbery as it looked a bit run down, lived in, unpretentious and characterful.
I like slightly scruffy pubs so I suspect the previous reviewer thought that this pub, like the bus service lowered the tone of the village.
However when the barman charged me 3.20 for a pint of the rubbish that is John Smith's bitter and said that was cheap I realised that this pub
was just as tainted as the rest of the area.
